Some months ago a fire occurred at the stock yards, creating considerable excite ment, but resulting in no terious loss. Last Wednesday another faro occurred in Ihe same locality, with a much more seriont icsulf. to-wit: Thr i extraction of an ordinary frame stable abo IMiGS feet in site, the loss of three very fine hordes, about 2,500 fret ot Inmber and abont sevcnty.fire buffalo bides (which had been stowed away in tho stable.) six cords of dry wand, one barrel of oil and a Dirt nt tbe plitform and board fences adjoin ing the stable. Loss, abont $2,000 Up to this time tbe origin of tbe Gre haa not been ascertained. About twenty five head of borers, in charge of Mr. Sander son, of thehrm of Harlow & Sanderson, of Pueblo, were unloaded from tbe can at the stock yards, on Wednesday morn ing, to be fed and watered. Tbe stock wasle'ng shipped to Colorado. Mewrs. Wall. McGonigle, Sanderson and twomen employed at lh yard, were taking care of the horses, and bad baaled several bales of bay from town and piled it in tbe stable. Among the lot of boiars were two tine bngty animals requiting more psmcular attention than Ihe rear. These, witb two others, were placed in the stable. About 9 o'clocs: Mr. Wall was called away from the stable, remain id airay some minulff, and it appears that during bis absence no one was kiawn to visit the stable, th other men being at work in another part ot the yard. When he returned he found tbe hay on fire. lie at once tried to smother it out, but it had gained too much headway. Tbe alarm was given and in a short time tbe tire company wcis at tbe scene of the fire. Thr wind was blowing busily and the building was completely enveloped in blax. One of the horses had been res cued bat ihe otber three positively and Mabburnly refuted to be either led or diivtn ftimr the burning building. They were loosed, and the door was open. Their neirhs and nickenngs were bean'. nntil the roof fell in, whrn their bod' weresoon burned to a crisp For .wo bouts all hands worked rigorossly to pre vaiit the fire from spreading, lbe femes, platform and one of the shoots were loin down. About noon tbe file was coder coutrul and the exhausted liie-tiahters returnrd home. This is Ihe second lime tho tire eumpany has Ix-en railed npvu in casnof tire, and the ne:nlurss of the or ganization is felt by everyone.

Tbo case of Drtn City vs. James linn ion, carrying deadly weapons, in th city limits, was tbe great attraction last Monday attcineoa. The higii position Mr. Manioj ocenpie in social and business circle of Ibis communltr anilnnbtedly went far towards exciting unusual interest in tbe cjse. and when court opened there was not room enough inside for half of tbo would be spectator.
